EKC Group welcomes the statement by the Government yesterday evening regarding external examinations that have already been planned for January. We believe that we are able to offer these examinations safely and the overwhelming feedback from students is that they would like the opportunity to sit their examinations.
Therefore, we will continue to offer the examinations as planned. It will be an individual students choice as to whether they wish to sit the examination. For those who choose not to sit the examination(s) then we will do everything to ensure that future opportunities for sitting the examination are made available. Alternatively, the Government may offer alternative forms of assessment.
At this time we do not know what any alternatives will be but will communicate them as soon as we know.
Any questions should be directed to your local College in the first instance.
